A.I.R. Gallery is pleased to announce CURRENTS, a timely and innovative exhibition series. For the inaugural 2010 exhibit, Martha Wilson will curate, “At Her Age,” an exhibit on Women, Age and Sex. The deadline for entries is May 14, 2010. An exhibit will take place in A.I.R.’s Gallery I space from December 1, 2010 through January 2, 2011.
At Her Age will examine how women at any period in their life, old or young, view their changing bodies. Questions to be addressed could be: “How does age affect experiencing one’s sexual/sensual life?” or “How does age impact one’s evolving personal and social relationships?” While others may perceive older women as inconsequential or asexual, they personally may experience increasing knowledge of themselves. Younger women may experience curiosity/fear/pleasure about the changes in their own bodies due to age. A.I.R. Gallery is looking for artwork that addresses age and sex as part of a transformational process.

A.I.R. Gallery is pleased to announce CURRENTS, a timely and innovative exhibition series. Each year the CURRENTS exhibit will address an issue that warrants expanded critical attention in the art world. A.I.R. will invite established and non-traditional curators (artists, activists, writers, poets) to select the works to be exhibited with the theme designed as a collaboration between the curator and the gallery. This new opportunity is open to all self-identified women artists worldwide and will be curated through an open call and through invitations by the curator

A.I.R. Gallery – ADVOCATING FOR WOMEN IN THE ARTS SINCE 1972.
Founded in 1972, A.I.R. is the first artist-run, not-for-profit gallery for women artists in the country. The announcement for the gallery’s first exhibition in September of 1972 elaborates our founding concept: “A.I.R. does not sell art; it changes attitudes about art by women. A.I.R. offers women artists a space to show work as innovative, transitory or unsaleable as the artists’ conceptions demands.” Based on the feminist principles of economic cooperation and decision by consensus, A.I.R. continues to offer an alternative venue for women that protects the creative process and the individual voice of the artist
A.I.R. Gallery is located at 111Front Street, #228, in the DUMBO neighborhood of Brooklyn, NY.
Gallery hours: Wednesday – Sunday, 11am to 6pm.
